What are nearly-new cars?

Nearly new cars are low-mileage cars that are under 12 months old. They fall into the following three categories:

Ex-demonstrator cars

These are vehicles that have been used exclusively by the selling dealership for the purpose of test drives and demonstrations.

They usually have a few thousand miles on, are under 18 months old and will have been well maintained by the dealership's own technicians.

Pre-registered cars

Pre-registered (pre-reg) cars - also known as "delivery mileage" cars - are vehicles that have been registered to the dealership, and represent great savings from brand new.

These cars will usually have less than 100 miles on. Although virtually brand-new, they are technically sold as a used car because they have been registered.

Used cars less than 12 months old
Used cars that are less than 12 months old and less than 5,000 miles on the clock can also be classed as "nearly-new", and come with a lot of the same benefits as ex-demonstrator and pre-registered cars.
